Which of two "troubleshooting" pages in the Keyboard Maestro Wiki?

Keyboard Maestro 11.0.3: Work Faster with Macros for macOS links to User Manual [Keyboard Maestro Wiki] that in turn links to:

Trace: • Home_PageSupportTroubleshootingUser_ManualTroubleshooting

This page is way less comprehensive compared to:

Trace: • Home_PageTroubleshootingSupportUser_ManualTroubleshooting

The former was a dead end for me, when I was looking how/where Keyboard Maestro handles logging of Keyboard Maestro.

Well spotted... That is a bit confusing, but apparently intentional, since that first Troubleshooting page links to the second one! Perhaps @peternlewis could kindly clarify this.

I suspect that the first Troubleshooting page you linked to is a remnant of the time when the "Manual" and the "Wiki" were two different (but overlapping) resources.

There is a small generic Troubleshooting section of the User Manual.

And there is a a large reference Troubleshooting page on the Wiki.

The User Manual is hosted on the wiki.

That is why there are two pages, with quite different focusses.

Thanks. I guessed as much but had thought that the manual and the Wiki were the same thing these days. How do you see the "different focusses"?

By the way, Peter, the two links about the forum in the manual's Troubleshooting page should probably be brought in line with the Wiki's Troubleshooting page, by also being changed from https://forum.keyboardmaestro.com/ to https://wiki.keyboardmaestro.com/Forum. See also the reference in https://wiki.keyboardmaestro.com/manual/Assistance.

The User Manual is designed to be a single document, with a table of contents and a PDF version. You could, for the most part, read the manual from start to finish to gain knowledge of how Keyboard Maestro operates.

The wiki is more a reference for the details, the bulk of it documents the actions and the triggers, conditions and collections.
